December is always an insane month, on top of all the normal festivities we also have a TON of birthdays, including my own and my son's. I get so wrapped up in the whirlwind, I rarely slow down to really enjoy it. This year is going to be different......I cross my heart. This year, to heck with the mess, I am giving myself permission to play with my 3 beautiful children and not get upset over the mess that celebration and creativity create. I will say yes to them more often. I will spend more time with them, I will not be so preoccupied with perfection that I don't see the beauty in their proud little faces, as they show off their crooked endeavours. This December this is my goal, See Joy........find it everywhere. I need to do that, I crave it, the light hearted feeling of laughter, the elation of Charity, and the power of forgiveness. This for me will be the spirit of the season.
